Yeah 2 monitors on the 2 MiniDPs and another 2 on the DVI-D and DVI

The HDMI port is shared with one of the DVI ports I believe that's why you can't use the 2 DVI ports and the HDMI port.

Get an active adapter for your 3rd monitor.

You have to use the miniDP there's no way around it.

You can cheap out and go to best buy and get the miniDP to VGA adapter
or get a proper USB powered miniDP/DP to DVI active adapter.

Your monitors should come with the cables so no need for the hdmi cables. They will probably be DVI if so 2 of your monitors are good. the third one if you decice to get mini DP to VGA adapter obviously you will need a vga cable, if you get an active mini DP to DVI adapter youre all set.

In my experience my display looks better using DVI cables as opposed to HDMI.
